Decoupage Frame with Scrapbook Paper

This the the frame we used for our tutorial.  Any unfinished frame can be used for this project.  We love these inexpensive frames!  See below for links to purchase the frames and other supplies. 

STEP 1: COLOR SIDES

Decoupage Frame with Scrapbook Paper

Using a Sharpie marker of coordinating color to your chosen paper, color the sides of the frame. We also colored the inside rim of the heart. These can also be left in their original color. Leave the marker dry well before continuing or the color may run.

STEP 2: CUT OUT PAPER

Trace around frame on the paper to mark a cutting line.

Using the Exacto knife and the ruler, cut out the rectangle from the paper. Be sure to cut on top of the cardboard to be sure you don't damage your table.

STEP 3: TRACE AND CUT OUT HEART

Turn the paper over to the back and place the frame face down onto the paper. This is how the paper will be on the frame. Trace around the heart and then use the Exacto knife to cut out the heart.

STEP 4: SEAL THE SIDES AND HEART

It's time to decoupage! First, using your foam or paint brush, apply the Mod Podge to the sides of the frame over the parts that were colored with a Sharpie marker. Don't forget to apply to the inside edge of the heart. If the Sharpie marker color came off onto your brush, be sure to clean and wipe it off so it doesn't get onto the rest of the project.

STEP 5: APPLY THE FIRST PAPER

Apply Mod Podge evenly across the front of the frame. Carefully place the paper onto the front of the frame. Be sure to place it down correctly because it's hard to move the paper once it's placed down. Smooth the paper out across the frame to remove any bubbles. You can use a smoothing tool or card.

The paper may extend slightly over the edge of the frame. Fold and wrap this extra paper around to the sides. You will want to decoupage this down to the sides of the frame by putting Mod Podge underneath and working the paper until it stays down. You could also just trim the extra paper off. Put Mod Podge over top of the wrapped around paper also. Be sure to clean your brush if some Sharpie marker color came off onto your brush.

STEP 6: CUT OUT SECOND PAPER

If you are using a second paper on your frame, cut out the shape from the paper. For the frame in the photo below, I used a coordinating paper and cut out the heart and swirl shape. In the video, I used the heart cutout from this frame and applied that to the front of the frame.

STEP 7: APPLY SECOND PAPER

Apply Mod Podge across the entire front of the frame evenly again. This is over the first paper which will seal it. Place your second paper cutout in position. Apply one or two coats of Mod Podge over the entire front of the frame. Allow the Mod Podge to dry for about 30 minutes between coats.

The back of the frame can also have Mod Podge applied if you desire. This would give a more finished look to the back of the frame also.

FINISHED

Allow the Mod Podge to dry completely and the frame will be finished. Add a favorite photo to the frame and insert the dowel to stand the frame up.
